This 12-day itinerary will take you along picturesque towns of German heritage and the Italian-rooted wine traditions in Brazil. You will visit 4 states: Espirito Santo, Sao Paulo, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul. This is a cultural and gastronomic program full of surprising discoveries, perfect from family trips as well as for romantic holidays. This circuit is also interesting from the point of view of immigration. Learn about the story of families who have built a community in a totally new part of the world. Discover if, perhaps, some of the culture which vanished in Europe has been preserved here. Hike to Pedra Azul in Espirito Santo, take the cable-car and walk on the SkyGlass in Parque do Caracol, enjoy the fairy tale atmosphere in Gramado and Campos do Jordao during Christmas, sing and dance along locals at Oktoberfest in Blumenau, cycle along vineyards in Serra Gaucha and so much more. Taste Brazilian wines and beers, both from renowned producers and from small wine & beer-makers. Stay in charming inns along the whole journey. This program can be adapted to you: it can be done the other way around or in a different sequence, depending on the flights and your availability.
